Product Description

This text corpus based study is the first investigation of secondary predication in a Siouan language, specifically Lakota. It is also the first study on Lakota morphosyntax which relies on prosodic data. It explores the following phenomena of Lakota syntax: complex predicates with stative verbs, ad-nominal modification with stative verbs, modification with derived modifiers, secondary predication, multi-verb constructions, pre-modification and a number of other syntactic constructions. The study disproves a number of widely held notions about Lakota, clarifies some outstanding issues, and identifies several hitherto unknown features in the language.
